What's the difference between DHP customers, and new customers who get their equipment for free? When I switched from Comcast digital cable, to Dish network a year ago, I was told the DHP was the best way to go, so I got two 310's and paid $49 to upgrade my 3rd receiver to a 508. New customers now, and maybe a year ago too, could get 2 or 3 receivers installed free, and now a 510 free (?), or do they pay to upgrade to it. Anyway, it's hard to understand why I pay $5 a month to lease, and "regular" Dish subs pay, it they want, $1.99 for an extended warranty. I think Dish should let any DHP customer, who agrees to extend their commitment another year, keep the equipment they have, and switch to being a regular customer, and pay $1.99 for an extended warranty, and not have to pay the $5 lease anymore.
